End: Fri, 06/11/2010 - 8:30pm
John Lang and Kay Byer will be at City Lights on Friday, June 11th at 7:00 p.m. for a reading and discussion based on Lang's book, Six Poets from the Mountain South.
In the most extensive work to date on major poets from the mountain South, Lang explores the pervasive religious and spiritual concerns of many of the mountain South’s finest writers, including Fred Chappell, Robert Morgan, Jeff Daniel Marion, Kathryn Stripling Byer, and Charles Wright.
Lang wil touch briefly on all the poets covered in the book but will pay particular attention to his interpretation of Kay Byer's work. Kay will then read from some of her work, and both authors will take questions from the audience.
